Ciao, friends & fashionistas!
First of all, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday season!
Second of all, let’s talk fashion and the process.
Prompted by recent events*, I am being encouraged to follow through on things I never have before. For example, tonight I realized I have five unfinished drafts just waiting to be shared. *Face palm*. I have advised many aspiring designers on visionary and creative movements, but only recently began sketching designs. I definitely haven’t mailed any Christmas cards yet and there is a mysterious pile of laundry in my room I should probably investigate. Whether it is a written draft or mental idea, self doubt or laziness, my trend is to begin in my element, quickly stop trusting my instincts at the first gust of self doubt, and subsequently, abandon all movement, casting it aside it like last season’s runway line. Time to leave this trend behind <boy, bye!> and embrace lasting style, for today and 2017.
What makes the creative process so dynamic for me are the experiences that inspire movement, life, and the elusive whisper of something unseen. What inspires you? I invite you to take a look at some of my fave looks from this shoot with Dinah. Below, observe several looks infused with varying prints and solids perfect for the modern workplace or out and about. Cropped tops, wide leg, contrasts, accompanied by a dash of eclectic, incorporate a structured masculine line with a softer, feminine twist to create an unusual blend of self expression, style and direction. Both ready to wear and office artsy looks offer several shades of blue, peach, and earth tones.
I hope this inspires you to be bold this season and follow the unspoken voice that prompts you toward all you are meant to be because <you’re fabulous!> & all of the exciting things to come your way.
Thanks for stopping by, fashionistas! Cheers and until next time, xoxo FS
*Why it takes tragedy to inspire movement, I am at a loss. Inspired by one of the dearest, colorful and most beautiful of souls, I gravitate toward fashion as a form of self expression, connection, forward change, new ideas, and more. My thoughts and prayers are with anyone experiencing a loss. If you’d like a specific prayer or encouragement, message me and I will reach you back! <3 Love, FS
